We enjoy Spring here in Lancaster County. Lovely weather, lovely gardens, fresh displays of spring color and gardens responding to gentle touches of the gardener. Farmer’s are planting seeds of hope for harvest, not many months away!Friday mornings is my time to go “gather” food for the weekend, for us and for our guests here at Stumptown Manor Bed and Breakfast.

We were so lucky to have found the Stumptown Manor. It is centrally located in a picturesque setting and the hosts were extremely friendly, hospitable, and knowledgeable about the area. The food was also delicious (ask for the breakfast cake!). Would definitely go back, and highly recommend to others.

My husband and I went alone for the first time during a weekend and we loved it. The room, the fresh food and great coffee first thing in the morning, the warm welcome and the "at home feeling". We loved it so much that we came back for our week vacation with our daughters and grandchild and had a great time.

I could never imagine being received with such warmth and hospitality when I selected Stumptown Manor as the B&B fir my return to the area my ancestors left 200 years ago. The Shirk family went out of their way to help me realize my dreams: lent me a bike to wander miles of beautiful countryside and see the Amish farms, provided deliciously healthy & local food and showed me extraordinary kindness. I'm so grateful for their hospitality.

I've never slept better than at Stumptown Manor. The beds were so comfy, the room so clean and the atmosphere was the best ever. We spent a week Mother/Daughter vacation in Lancaster, PA. Stumptown Manor was our home, Sharon and Carl are family. Our Hosts always asked if we needed anything, we had an endless supply of coffee and home brewed tea. The breakfast, was nothing out of a box, it was all hand made by Sharon; fresh fruit, pastries, and different receipts from Amish Country. Sitting on Stumptown Manors front porch, watching the birds, bunnies, squirrals, traveling horse and buggy Amish Families was one of my most favorite memories. Sharon and Carl guided us to the best spots in PA, things to see and experience, they even invited us to a show. WOW.....I miss them. I will be certain to return, next time with my hubby, and after he meets Carl he won't want to come home, they have so much in common. Anyhow, I can not say enough good things about Stumptown Manor and its Host. It was a wonderful vacation with my mother, one we will remember forever. Thanks Sharon and Carl.

Sharon and Carl are welcoming caring hosts with an exceptional attention to service. A home away from home with a new baby is hard to find but the considerations made for us kept our little one happy and us very happy. Thoughtful and DELICIOUS breakfasts and afternoon cookies catered to a post Turkey Hill Classic bicycle race appetite. The hosts were conversational but not overbearing. Highlights were mornings on the porch with coffee, bread from her sisters bake shop, delicious hot full breakfasts, a very comfortable bed and room, help from Sharon to find our way around the town to restaurants and shops. Sharon was even eager to hear about our daily explorations. Truly one of our very best local getaways. We will be back!
